MINSK, 30 August (BelTA) – Belarus is absolutely interested in peaceful resolution of trade wars in the world, Belarus Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told reporters, BelTA has learned.

The minister emphasized that trade and economic disputes were on the agenda of the Minsk talks with U.S. President's National Security Advisor John Bolton on 29 August. “I mean ongoing trade and economic disputes between individual states. Our stance on this issue is clear. The Belarusian side calls for finding a compromise instead of engaging in trade wars. Belarus believes that parties need to meet each other halfway while addressing thorny issues. Belarus believes that any feud, in particular feuds between geopolitical powers, immediately affects the entire economic situation, economic cooperation, in particular, mid-size and small countries, like Belarus. Therefore, we are deeply interested in resolving this kind of trade and economic disputes peacefully, at the negotiating table, instead of issuing various kinds of ultimatums,” Vladimir Makei said.

He emphasized that Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made this position clear at his meeting with John Bolton.
